Career Conversations - March 2017: 2nd Session

Welcome to a new FREE initiative designed to support the connectivity between members, rural, regional and urban based. The National L&D committee will be facilitating an online zoom meeting for up to 20 registrants every 2 months over the 2016/2017 year.

February's discussion will be centred on the Psychology of Working Theory recently published by Ryan Duffy (keynote speaker at the CDAA conference 2017), David Blustein, Matthew Diemer, and Kelly Autin (2016), exploring in particular the strategies that careers practitioners use to support their clients' search for decent work.

According to the Psychology of Working Theory, a person's ability to secure decent work is negatively impacted by economic constraints and marginalization, which are themselves mediated by the "self-regulatory career strengths" of work volition and career adaptability. The interplay between these negative and positive influences is further moderated by a person’s proactive personality, critical consciousness, social support, and economic conditions.

This discussion will focus on the practical ways that careers practitioners can help their clients reduce the impact of economic constraints and marginalisation and increase their work volition and career adaptability. Participants will share their experience with and knowledge of working alongside clients in search of decent work.
